byebug / ruby-debug: Find out current debugger position

So you are debugging like a boss and lost track of where you actually are in your code? No problem:

  • Calling "l=" will show you the current file and line. That's a lower-case L and an equals sign.
  • "where" (or "backtrace") will give you the debugger call stack, including current file and line as well. It can be quite long.
